TED TALKS | Education Revolution | Julie Lythcott-Haims: A Check-Listed Childhood | PBS

In this excerpt from TED Talks: Education Revolution, Julie Lythcott-Haims, author of How to Raise an Adult, talks about the dangers of “a check-listed childhood,” where they need to go to the “right schools” and take the right classes, leading up to the “right college.” This can lead, she argues, to stress and depression over perceived failure.
